Autumn Leaves

A fantastic air for the uilleann pipes, I love this key, you will need to use your keys on the chanter to be able to play this air.

C: Kozma József

Classic jazz number, composed by Kozma József/Joseph Kosma, for a ballet by Roland Petit (Le Rendez-vous). Words were written by Kosma’s colleague, Jacques Prévert and it later became a theme for a Marcel Carné movie (Les Portes de la nuit). After that, Johnny Mercer wrote some lyrics in English and it took off.

This will be a bit of a pig if you don’t have keys on your chanter!

The Autumn Leaves Drift By My Window

Yeah, I have about 40 different recordings of Autumn Leaves on my computer, it’s a very common jazz standard. You could tap this resource effectively forever if you were so inclined: and There are tunes that would be a bit easier on pipes or flutes too. Without a chord progression behind the melody most would sound a bit unfinished, to put it mildly. Autumn Leaves would be a lot less finger twisting on the pipes in A minor, too. It’s amusing to think of it as a barn dance too…no category here for airs so eh.

autumn leaves?

well, i guess there is room for jazz standards in ITM? no?

it is all good!

except the midi has serious faults

Re: Autumn Leaves

Ah, the wonders of automated transposition in abc!

In X:2, Ggmfj7 and Cgmfj7 are Gmaj7 and Cmaj7, respectively (‘b’ for flat has become ‘g’ and shouldn’t be there anyway).
Similarly, Gb7 should be G7 and Fm7g5 should be F#m7b5.
